Meet Christina, the definition of fierce. She pulls off an outfit like nobody's business, and never lets her size get in the way of trying daring trends. From jumpsuits to micro minis, she takes risks and turns heads, considering fashion an art. The girl's style is completely inspiring, and trust me when I say her designer shoe collection is insane. Lucky for us, she is ready to share her fabulousness with the world; she has just started blogging. Be sure to check her out: The Musings of a Fatshionista.

Advice to other YFF Girls: Don't be afraid to take risks. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. The fun in fashion is in the experimentation.

Forever Fat

I'm guessing many of you have noticed my longer than expected hiatus from blogging (in fact I know you have, considering some of the e-mails I've been getting).  Thanks for your patience! To be honest, updating this thing has been on my to-do list for far too long, and it probably would have stayed there even longer had I not received some amazing news just minutes ago. If you've read my past entries, I'm sure you've gathered that I have a sort of obsession with Forever21. They've never catered to fat girls, but I can't help digging through the racks for the few stretchy items that will accommodate my not-so-thin bod. Well my friends, today I realized there must be someone looking down on me from above, because Forever21 has announced they will be adding a plus size line to their stores this May! I don't think I've been this ecstatic since 4th grade when I won a basket of pogs in a raffle at the mall. Huge props to if only Urban Outfitters and others would follow suit.
